    From the ArmyTimes...
    For half of My career I was in the 1st group - averaging 45? Hrs per week, or so...with the occasional 24hr duty (about one or two days every-other-month)

    For the other half, I was between the second and third groups.

    Well intentioned... but divide a soldier's gross weekly pay by 40 hours to get a better picture.

    Or, knowing that soldiers typically work longer hours than that, divide it by 50-55 hours. That might give a more realistic picture.

    Regardless, soldiers are paid by the month for a reason.

    Wait and see...hehe :-D


    The Ad personnel are a lock to get a raise; it's the rest of us who may not get the full 3.5. :(

    if that 3.5% DOES happen, coupled with a within-grade step increase I get in February, my pay could be up some $3500 per year from what it is now, come next march.

    woot! :)

    Beer's on me!

    Joker, nice to see ya here. Local radio host here says "whatever we pay these guys, it ain't enough."

    I think we should exempt anyone who was shot at in the service from federal taxes , for life.

    My brother recently left the Air Force and he and his family had to have food stamps in order to get by. These guys and girls need more money.
